Interesting entries in the letterbox comp. In Australia we call them mailboxes. The boxes are very much like the US type but they don't have a flag so you have to go out to the mailbox & open it to see if you have mail. 

 

Lovely entries so far too!

The flag in the 'up' position indicates to the mailman that you have letters inside that you want him to take to the post office. (cos you were too lazy to go...)

At least, that's what I was told.  😊

Oh really? I did not know that! We have to take our mail to the post office.

 

It's a rural thang. We country bumpkins have the same service in NZ.

In the UK and Ireland they're called post boxes.

That's where you post your letters.

They are not only outside post offices but dotted around every town and city.

Letter boxes are the slot in your front door to receive mail.

Not done a pic yet. Hopefully by the weekend.🙂

Gosh, how different we all are! I see on the telly that people get letters dropped through a slot in their front door. Our houses are very different as are our streets. How cool to have letters dropped through your front door! 

 

I have to walk down the stairs, along the garden path to the mailbox to collect any letters. Not that we get many. Just some bills BUT crystal deliveries are soemtimes found in there too :D Wayyyyy too big for a slot in the door.

 

Hope to see your entry soon. Doubt if I will get time but you never know :D

Fixed color, gradient, or any old thing? I assume fixed color, but thought I'd ask.

I would say a fixed color of your choice, or a simple gradient.  No photos, or fancy stuff 😆

If gradients  are allowed, I suggest that perhaps two fixed colors separated by a horizontal boundary also be allowed.  The lower color could represent a surface upon which the ice cube rests, and the upper color, a background. It could used to help emphasize the ice cube's refractive aspect. Perhaps even two gradients separated by a horizontal boundary, if we want to get really fancy.
